After your trademark is approved, you must file documents with the IPOPHL to prove that you have a real product or service that supports your trademark filing. This filling is called the Declaration of Actual Use (DAU). We fill in a form for you, submit the form to the office in Manila, and include a few photos as proof.
We charge a fee of 6990PHP for this. Please contact us for more information. This declaration is made only after your trademark application has been approved.
After this step is completed the trademark office will issue your Certificate of Trademark Registration. We will then then send your certificate to you at no additional fee, to any address in the Philippines. (Beware many law firms charge extra fees just to send you your certificate.) If you are outside the Philippines you can provide your courier tracking number, and we will ship it to your freight collect.
Note: The 6990PHP fee only includes Declaration of Actual Use, and does not include Initial Registration or Publication for Opposition. If you wish to include those, please consider buying our discount package. None of our packages include Opposition (if that occurs in your specific case) because it only affects a minority of applications.
